It's turbo, depends on how you drive.
If always WOT then expect to pay a lot on fuel, if you a cruiser then it shouldn't be any worry

On constant WOT I would get 320 km to a tank

Average $1 per km on fuel cost for the turbo legacy and approx 250-300 per tank depending on driving conditions

This is on a retuned ecu

Circa $320-ish at gaslight lol

the LGT is def not a fuel efficient car and if it's cruising they speak off then that's hiway driving for sure..driving around the town/stop and go traffic will wreck your avg km/l..but still not bad for a car weighing over 3000 lbs

that being said..its a fun car to own lol

If price of gas is a problem...you can water meth and re-tune for super gas...so invest a $2800 for a meth kit...and retune for a $2000 or so.....and spend $140 in super gas instead of $320 premium......or if you don't want the meth... just retune for super.... but the car will have less power...it's your call.....running with meth is safer for your engine.... but you have to fill it up too...but you still come out cheaper..:grin:

If gas prices are an issue, my advice would be to go non turbo.

Buying a turbocharged vehicle only to restrict it's performance is counterproductive.

Might I ask what is the price of methanol currently. ....
Cause in my mind it would work out to be about the same.
How far does one litre of methanol go.
Must also mention that you are adding more things in your car to go wrong.

in my forester running 20psi on a sti turbo i used a gallon of meth about every 10-14 days. WOT HEAVY. one gallon costs $40. prices vary +/-$7 depending on who u buy from. Keep in mind one gallon in the tank is a 50/50mix water and meth, So you use $20 meth and the rest water, to fill a 1 gallon tank. Also i sellin meh foz an part it out. My meth kit for sale $1800 buy it nah sombody.

OP what's your daily commute?

If you're concerned about saving cash then gas may not be your only concern. These cars are built well so when a part does need to be changed you should strive to go OEM as much as possible and those parts aren't cheap.

I have my own 11 months now and honestly can't see myself driving anything else... I wouldn't even trade it for Mercedes C class and GLK350 which I rented in Miami.

Buy a Turbo and drive sensibly and you will LIKE yourself, the car is heavy so even with a N/A it isn't gonna be as fuel efficient as say something light like a Swift or a Pickup.

My foot is heavy but I have the SI Drive so I put it on Intelligent which limits me to part throttle and 5psi which is pretty efficient but this is like giving a child a container of sweets and saying have one a day I'm afraid I drive mainly in Sport and I spend some time at the pumps

Is there any difference with the regular Legacy B4 non turbo and B4 B Sport besides cosmetic?
Both carry identical engine and transmission?

Need to know thanks.
